The US Government for the second year received a "D+" for the state of it computer security. For non-Americans: that's pretty close to failing.
Eight of the rated agencies failed altogether to comply with the 2002 Federal Informaiton Security Management Act, including the department for Homeland Security that is supposed to protect that nation against terror attacks.
In all honesty, another five agencies received the highest possible mark: an A+. Yet another five didn't get beyond a D.
Instead of attacking the sorry state of insecurity, agencies are starting to attack the grading system for being overly bureaucratic. Another gripe is that technology is changing too fast, causing organisations to fall behind. This would be a great argument if the same applied to attackers and online criminals as well.
